Set Your Font to 282,000,000,000 to Reach the Moon
Enlarged fonts have saved the asses of many a panicked student at 3 in the morning. But besides padding essays, what can a bigger font do for you? Crank it up to the billions, and you can reach the moon.
As this will be a mission of not only intrepid spacefaring, but true typography geekery, our vessel of choice will be, of course, Helvetica. Now, we boldly format where no one has formatted before. With our font set to a staggering 282.6 billion points, we type a single word. That word? Helvetica, of course. At these settings, the letter "h" alone is 44,600 miles tall—easily dwarfing the earth itself—and the single word would span the entire 217,852 miles between us and the lunar surface. Suddenly that 12.5 point paper you handed in sophomore year doesn't seem so bad.
